Prosecutor says trial will be long process
A Colorado district attorney says it will likely be at least a year before the suspect in a movie theater attack stands trial.
District attorney Carol Chambers says it will be months before a decision is made on the death penalty for James Holmes, who will be charged Monday.
Holmes’ eyes drooped and he blinked rapidly Monday in his first court appearance, at times opening his eyes widely.
Chambers says she has no information on whether Holmes is on medication.
Lawyer says suspect family stands by son
The lawyer for family members of the Colorado theater shooting suspect says they support him.
When asked if James Holmes’ family stands by him, Lisa Damiani told reporters Monday in San Diego: “Yes they do. He’s their son.”
She says the family’s hearts go out to the victims and their families.
